So normally I wouldn't make two posts for one cake - but (!!!) this week's cake is particularly complex to describe. Originally I wasn't going to post the details about how I made the mini Cinderella who stands with the castle, but then I figured there may be someone somewhere who might like to know. I also don't normally post step by step photos, but I figured this time it may help. So, without further delay, here she is!
I've been making little figures out of fondant icing for a while now to sit or stand on or next to a novelty cake. I've never made an animated character before though! (This post is just full of firsts!) Usually they are characatures of the friend(s) that the cake is for, and a couple of times I've done characters from books. Doing these figures I developed a bit of a style - making them simplified and dumpy looking with no facial features - but I kind of like it so I'm sticking with it. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I know this figure does not specifically look like Disney's Cinderella, but that's OK, because she is my version of her.
The real deal
Prep time: 30 mins
180g ready to roll white icing
Food colouring (I use paste colourings, as you use less than liquid, the colour is more vibrant, and the icing doesn't get as sticky and so is easier to work with.)
Sugarflair Paste Colouring in Baby Blue
Sugarflair Paste Colouring in Yellow/Cream
Sugarflair Paste Colouring in Pink
1 tbsp icing sugar
few drops warm water
